For a great guided tour of Bar Harbor, Oli's trolley is awesome. You learn about the history of Bar Harbor and get some of the best scenery ever. There are several points of interest where you get off of the trolley and explore for a little bit. Must do.

Oli's Trolley is adorable and affordable for 2 hours. We would have gone on the longer tour but it was a rainy and very overcast day, and Cadillac Mountain was closed. The stone bridges, built by workers during the Depression, are a testament to good engineering and awesome work ethic. We saw a beaver dam, a "shrine" and an authentic native wigwam (built by a local most summers). Although it's a pretty area, this isn't a "breathtaking" tour. Lots of name dropping including Martha Stewart and the Rockefellers. Some interesting history about a fire. Our driver, also the local high school guidance counselor, was born & bread in Bar Harbor and guess what...he didn't have a "Maine" accent. He said that "bah harbah" accent is a Maine FISHERMAN's accent.

Here's a word of wisdom: after your tour if you want to walk along the harbor DON'T go down onto the shore. Those rocks are covered with seaweed and they're super slippery. I shortly turned around to come back up to the perfectly charming path (that's safe) but too late. Slipped and broke my wrist. But if you ignore my warning, say hello to PA Guy and the other ER folks at the Mt Desert Island Hospital. They're very nice.

We were in Bar Harbor for one day when our cruise ship docked there 10/21/2012. I reserved the 2.5 hour tour online. The tour guide gave alot of interesting info about the area and kept the tour moving so we could see the beautiful area. There we 3 stops, Cadillac Mountain, Thunder Hole & some Public Gardens. There was a rest room available at one of the stops. We had a bright sunny day, it couldn't have been nicer. I highly recommed this tour.

Pouring down rain all morning so we shopped. Had a 1:00 tour. (they add more tours on cruise ship days). It was coming down in buckets when we loaded onto the trolley. The driver gave us paper towels to keep wiping our windows. We could not see anything at the Cadillac overlook. However, we had a nice stop at Thunder Hole. Also there was a stop at the restroom in the park. Our driver seemed to know a lot of information. He was very good.

We were on a cruise and booked with Oli's, based on Cruise Critic & this site. The weather was horrible but the guide pulled it off. He was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. Very reasonably priced.
